The Two Popes (2019)
[#92 in 100 Films in a Year 2020]


Human. :II: Nature. by Nightwish

I'll always buy a new Nightwish album, though while I was waiting for this one to turn up (it took 10 days longer than it should've thanks to current events) I looked back at their last one and realised I'd only listened to it once in the five years since it came out (not logged on here, for some reason). I listened to it again and, frankly, could see why (though there are some tracks I like).

This new one is a double album, with CD1 containing nine tracks and CD2 a 31-minute track split into eight sections -- so very Nightwish (it's been 20 years since they released a studio album without at least one song over 10 minutes, and the last one included a 24-minute piece). Anyway, it made for amiable enough background music, but not much jumped out at me. I'll have to listen to it again -- I'll try not to wait five years this time.
